the injured, two u.s. air force reservists and one navy service member. earlier today, president obama spoke about the tragedy. >> my daughters go to the movies. what if malia and sasha had been at the theater as so many of our kids do every day. michelle and i will be fortunate enough to hug our girls a little tighter tonight and i'm sure you will do the same with your children, but for those parents who may not be so lucky, we have to embrace them and let them know we will be there for them as a nation. so again, i'm so grateful that all of you are here. i am so moved by your support, but there are going to be other days for politics. this i think is a day for prayer and reflection. >> joining me today, "time" magazine deputy washington bureau chief, michael crowley and patricia murphy, contributor to the daily beast. certainly a day of reflection. we are all still processing a lot as it comes to the details of this tragedy. michael, i want to talk about the president's comments, saying this isn't a day for politics, calling for us to -- it's a reminder of the fragility of life and calling

of a slur. that's not the name of the program. i know oftentimes as pundits, we use it loosely, but some people feel that's a negative term, even a pejorative term, and he was booed. he was actually applauded when he first came out. he got some other rounds of applause, because the -- and these are the very black leaders he claimed to have talked to on fox tonight. he brought about 20 black republicans with him into the room, and they kind of served as applauders for his applause lines. it was bizarre. i think a term you used was weird. he made several of the statements that were really strange. he even made other statements that many of us thought were disrespectful. for example, he talked about preserving traditional marriage, to an organization that most recently, this is the oldest civil rights organization in the country, most recently just endorsed marriage equality. he made a big pitch for charter schools to an organization where there's really no consensus about that. there are a lot of communities, especially in new york, the new york state conference and the naacp is dealing wi

romney started in bain in 1977. 25 years later, well, that takes us to 2002. according to mitt romney and his camp, the candidate didn't make any decisions for bain after 1999. he only benefitted financially from them. well, his campaign spokeswoman, ann degree yaw sall released this statement today. governor romney left bain capital in february of 1999 to run the olympics and had no input on investments or management of the companies after that point. another campaign aide told politico romney wasn't involved in any investment decisions. he was on the sec filings because he was still technically the owner, but just hadn't transferred owner ship to the other partners. well, history paints a very different picture. david corn of mother jones uncovered a february 1999 "boston herald" report about romney leaving for olympics. romney said he will stay on as part-timer with bain, providing input on investment and key personnel decisions. well, in july of 1999, romney was identified as the boss in a bain press release about the departure of two executives. bain capital ceow. -- willard, tha

information that could be used as evidence? and we're left with the lingering question and there's no good answer to this yet and that is why did he do that? the new york police commissioner ray kelly had reported that he had his hair painted red and said he was the joker and since then, there has been verification of that, that james holmes, the 24-year-old suspect, did indeed tell police he was the joker, but why is the outstanding question, ron. >> we've got 12 people dead, 71 reported wounded. is there any word as far as the wounded, how many of those 71 might be critically wounded? >> i just talked to some people who were at the hospital, the major hospital where the victims had been brought and they say they're being very closed mouthed. you can understand why and that is because a lot of the family members are trying to be contacted and so, we really don't know. we do know that some people have already been discharged, including a baby who was less than a year old who was inside the theatre, but as far as how many maybe seriously, maybe have life threatening injury, i haven't seen t

"the new york times" about today's penn state disgrace. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. it seems like only yesterday when mitt romney was on fox news talking about the political philosophy of responding to attacks. >> i, of course, respond to the attacks. but they say in politics if you're responding you're losing. >> romney and his campaign had a lot of responding too today. "the boston globe" expanded on the recording, only to find out that mitt romney was the top dog at bain capital three years after he said he left. according to the report, a massachusetts financial disclosure form romney filed in 2003 clearly stated he owned 100% of bain capital in 2002. and his state financial disclosures indicate he earned $200,000 as a bain executive in 2001 and 2002. the report also drops this bombshell, a romney campaign official who requested anonymity to discuss the sec filings acknowledged that they do not square with common sense. until now, romney laz protected himself politically from any bain business practices after he left the company. romney always says

because we do things together. >> good. glad we cleared that up. let's bring our panel with us from washington. msnbc political analyst, karen finney and democratic strategist, julian epstein. karen, when you look at the obama campaign ad, turns out romney agrees with the president. when you talk it all in context, so can we put this whole attack on free enterprise to bed? >> oh, jonathan. what is it, july? we're going to hear -- please, we're going to hear this between now and election day and what it shows is the romney campaign is getting very desperate. the kind of editing job that into the attack ad was something we have not quite seen at this early a stage in a campaign. and again, it shows there's an element of desperation. they think they were able to latch on to something. my favorite thing though is apparently, he's comfortable talking about the middle class and poor people. he wasn't so worried about the poor a while ago and wasn't talking about the middle class. he was focused on the job creators. must have seen a poll that says talk about the middle class, so he's talki

to be president. what does the romney camp do? they use one of their most winning surrogates, ann romney, because she's been far more likable than her husband on the campaign trail, but listen carefully to the first part of ann romney's explanation of why no more tax returns should be released. >> you know, you should really look at where mitt has led his life and where he's been financially. he's a very generous person. we give 10% of our income to our church every year. do you think that's the kind of person trying to hide things or do things? no. he is so good about it. then when he was governor of massachusetts, didn't take a salary in the four years. >> listen, giving charitable donations, however commendable, has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not a presidential candidate should release tax returns. they are two different issues. ann romney suggesting that this means mitt romney isn't hiding anything is, with all due respect, a ludicrous argument. mitt romney not taking a salary as governor is also totally irrelevant to the issue. here's the second part of ann romney's answer. >>

at times and gave very little detail on what or how he would change u.s. foreign policy. also, he had little to say on syria but that didn't stop him from slamming the president on topics ranging from impending defense cuts to israel nor from talking up one of his favorite topics, american exceptionalism. >> i'm an unapologetic believer in america, i'm not ashamed of american power. >> it was the investigation into the league around the investigation to kill osama bin laden where romney delivered his most full throated criticism of the president and staff. >> betrays national interest, compromises our men and women in the field and demands a full and prompt investigation by a special council with explanation and consequence. >> this comes a day after the president, without directly naming his opponent attacked romney and others who have called his withdrawal from iraq a failure. >> and some said that bringing our troops home last year was a mistake. they would have kept tens of thousands of our forces in iraq indefinitely, without a clear mission. well, when you're commander in chief,

. and the choosers. you are picking the president for the rest of us. so that means you don't have the luxury of political apathy. we, those of us who live in the all too predictable ballot box behavior states, counting on you to get it right. first of all, don't be fooled by the optics that are meant to signal the candidates understand the lives of scalled ordinary people. you know, like buss with folksy tour names. rich guys pretending they ride the bus is not a signal that they understand your lives. neither is rolling up their cleaves or leaving their neck ties at home or eating pancakes or drinking a beer. you know how politicians show you they can relate to your lives? creating policies that make your lives better. pay attention to what they say to you, not just what they are showing you. and numbers like these, totally unacceptable from a pew poll showed 45% of americans are completely clueless about the supreme court's landmark decision on affordable care act. listen, if it's your vote that determines whether or not the rest of us get health care, swing states, i need to you do a litt

concrete that might substitute for what obama did and might not lead us into a better future as americans through the the world. >> rick, strong words to from the president to vfw, does it open up to criticism of his record during war. we're alludeing to that time in france during vietnam. >> governor romney has to be careful overseas. has he to articulate i think for his conservative base in america first policy. he's clearly ahead on economics. clearly ahead even since the bain attacks and wants to take a chink out of the armor of obama, which is he's perceived as strong on foreign policy, probably because of the bin laden killing. i think the foreign policy with obama has been confused at best. we can't determine the difference between his action in libya and inaction in syria. we don't know his lack of leadership in syria caused russians to take a prominent stance. that has led to us being seen as weak, not by americans as the middle east. i think romney can do a lot, particularly with our allies to say what he would do and how he would shore up security in the middle east. we'll wait

the heck they want and keep all their money and maybe trickle some stuff down on to the rest of us or whether we agree as the president does we don't grow from the top down. we grow from the middle class up. the government has played a role in all of our lives, whether it is educating us about -- housing loans, building homes, building roads, et cetera, and that we are all in this together. and i think the president has really found his voice in a way thanks to romney picking on him so unfairly with this little -- he keeps bearing down on the message on cnbc, here is governor romney yesterday on cnbc, doubling down on his claim the president is anti-free enterprise. >> this is an ideology that says, hey, we are all the same here. we take from all and give to one another. and the achievement individual initiative and risk taking and success are not to be rewarded as they have in the past. it is a very strange and in something respects foreign to the american experience type of philosophy. >> jonathan, does it matter romney is distorting things and taking things out of context? will
